I have lodged a petition on the UK Government's website, which objects to the creation of a cross-Tamar "Devonwall" parliamentary constituency. Please sign, and please share as widely as you can.
The petition can be located at:
The full wording of the petition is as follows:
No to a cross-Tamar “Devonwall” parliamentary constituency
“Boundary Commission for England” is carrying out a review of the
boundaries of parliamentary constituencies. The review follows
guidelines in the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act.
This does not recognise Cornwall as a political unit and the BCE has
proposed a cross-Tamar seat.
We demand that Westminster
politicians amend the legislation to “Keep Cornwall Whole” and ensure
parliamentary seats lie entirely within the historic boundaries of
Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
It should be noted that the
Government has recognised the Cornish as a national minority through the
Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, and it
is evident that the creation of a “Devonwall” seat would be in conflict
with the articles of the Framework Convention.
Thank you for your support.
